SOURCE: my engine light is flashing on my 1996 caddy sedan

Hi:
Usually the only problem that will make the check engine light flash is a cylinder misfire. You need to have someone scan your car to see what codes are stored to help you troubleshoot the problem. It could be something simple, like a bad spark plug, or wire, or another engine component, like an ignition module or similar, but you won't know for sure till you scan your codes. Most auto parts stores, such as auto zone, will do this for free. THen you can start your hunt , based on what they tell you.!

The oil pressure sending unit is behind the front engine mount. You will need a deep special oil pressure socket to remove and install.It is NOT an easy task. There is no short cut but you might find it easier to remove the oil filter adapter, if you do that you should replace the "O" rings on the adapter. The oil pressure sender is mounted on the filter adapter

SOURCE: 05 kia amanti, rough idle, #1,#2,#3 misfire codes

Lets see if I can educate you

There have been no tune-ups in 25 years

You only get spark plugs
Purely an advertising gimick

Most important & a reason to stay as far way from
a dealer as possible

You went to a dealer as 500 people a week on this site
alone do,only to come here having wasted your money
& nothing is resolved

You have Cylinder Misfires & codes on 3 cyl

Don't you think they were there at the dealer &
they could care less

I have been dealing with that situation for 49 years

You need a local shop that has been there with the
same owner for 20 years or more to simple properly
diagnose a fairly simple & very very common problem

Runs smooth then runs rough & rough back to smooth running.


If your check engine light comes on get it checked. To me it sounds like an engine misfire probably cause by a coil pack or spark plug wire going bad. The misfire should cause the check engine light to come on maybe even flash if the misfire is bad enough

My 4.9 cadillac northstar is running rough. starts fine but power loss is evident...jus ??t like the the term "misfire" is what i'm feeling. any history with these engines with this symptom


Hmm... I would start by checking the power train control module or the transmission control module. Caddies are famous for transmission shift control module going hay wire. Since it is shifting up when it should be shifting down, this gives you the feeling of losing power.

Hey I got a 1996 ford explorer auto Running rich can I manual tune it


Rich running has nothing to do with a tune up unless the engine is misfiring, if it was misfiring you would have a blinking check engine light on while driving. Do an ODB2 fault code test, Autozone and Advance does this for free.

1996 Honda Accord Rough Idle Even After tune up performed Changed spark plugs, distributor cap and rotor wheel along with all spark plug wires, changed fuel filter, air filter, spent $150 on fuel injector...


Perform a valve clearance inspection and adjust if necessary. Tight or sticking valves will cause a misfire or rough running concern. Note: Perform valve adjustment when the engine is stone cold. 4cyl: INT 0.26mm EXH: 0.30mm (V6 engine are hydraulic and no adjust necessary.) Also check for a sticking or stuck open EGR valve. For diagnostic purposes only: Remove the EGR valve. Place a business card over the EGR passage and bolt the EGR valve back on. This plugs the EGR ports and if the misfire goes away the EGR valve is partially stuck open and is defective.
Check for low fuel pressure. Check for low compression. Check cam timing. Check for a weak ignition coil. Also don't over look the possibility of worn or broken engine mounts which cause excessive engine movement and engine vibration. -hope this helps
